HUNDREDS of people packed into a picturesque village to celebrate one of its most traditional summer events.

The Vale village of Charlton held its annual summer fayre on Saturday (June 21) which has been part of the village’s calendar for many years.

A dogs show, live music, a flower festival, morris dancing, maypole dancing, a duck race and many more activities were part of a packed day of events.

More than £2,500 was raised which will be split between the village’s church and village hall as well as other community organisations.

Charlton resident Helen Fowler, one of the organisers of the event, told the Observer: “It was a lovely day and the weather smiled at us throughout.

“It was great to see families enjoy themselves by taking part in a wide number of activities. There is something for everyone here and I think that is why the event is so special to many people.

“We the organisers are so grateful for everyone who came along and supported the event. We would not be able to hold this event without the community’s support.”
